Planned Parenthood revealed that its biggest contributor in 2017 was federal tax dollars. Under the title of “Government Health Services Reimbursements & Grants,” the abortion provider acknowledged that the federal government paid $544 million over the course of 2017, with an excess of revenues over expenses that were nearly $100 million. In 2017, Planned Parenthood’s excess revenue showed an increase of 27 percent over the previous fiscal year, from $77.5 million to $98.5 million in surplus income.

Planned Parenthood’s expenses included $40 million on public policy, $84.5 million on fundraising, and $47.9 million on sex education. In 2017, Planned Parenthood -- the largest abortion provider in the country -- performed 321,384 abortions in the United States. Planned Parenthood is one of the biggest contributors to Congressional political campaigns, especially to Democrats

Planned Parenthood heralded several court victories that it says serve to  protect and expand access to safe and legal abortion.” A court decision in Indiana was among the legal victories. When Planned Parenthood sued for the right to abort babies diagnosed with Down syndrome or selected for abortion because of sex or race, U.S. District Court Judge Tanya Walton Pratt argued against Indiana’s “Sex Selective and Disability Abortion Ban” that the state has no right to examine “the basis or bases upon which a woman makes her choice” to abort.

Abortion is currently the leading cause of death in the United States. Abortions accounted for over 900,000 U.S. deaths each year, followed by heart disease, cancer, and lower respiratory disease.
